What does the USA track federation award?
I do not believe they award anything to the athlete for Olympic medals, but they do have several incentive programs tied to Olympic performance.
They awarded $100,000 in a bonus pool to 18 athletes for qualifying for London. Athletes awarded include: Kyle Alcorn: runner-up, steeplechase
Keisha Baker, 1600 meter relay pool (5th place, 400 meters)
Lance Brooks: champion, discus throw
Stephanie Brown Trafton: champion, discus throw
Becky Holliday: runner-up, pole vault
Cyrus Hostetler: 5th place, javelin throw#
Molly Huddle: runner-up, 5000 meters
Kibwe Johnson: champion, hammer throw
A.G. Kruger: 3rd place, hammer throw
Jamie Nieto: champion, high jump
Kara Patterson: runner-up, javelin throw
Jeff Porter, 3rd place, 110 hurdles
Alice Schmidt: 3rd place, 800 meters
Amanda Smock: champion, triple jump
Aretha Thurmond: runner-up, discus throw
Morgan Uceny: champion, 1500 meters
Jason Young: 3rd place, discus throw
Rachel Yurkovich: 4th place, javelin throw+
Coaches who have an athlete medal are also eligible for a bonus supplement.
